All I can say, is WOW!  If you didn't see the last 25 laps of tonight's race, you will wish you did.  It had everything....daring moves, 3 & even 4 wide racing, flared tempers, differing pit strategies.  When the winner leads every lap, but the last one, is on older tires, but still almost holds on, only to lose by .008 seconds.  Man, I thought sure the top 3 or 4 were all gonna wreck in the last 10 laps, but they didn't. Congrats to all of the top 3 finishers, but in the end, Graham Rahal wanted the win just t little bit more. Still marveling at his over / under move coming out of turn 4 on the last lap.  What a race!

Racing Discussion / Lancaster ROC (Well done!)
« on: August 16, 2015, 10:56:53 AM »
I'm not sure exactly who (Lancaster staff or ROC staff) to give credit to, but my wife and I had a GREAT experience last night at Lancaster. Let me give some specifics:

Weather was perfect, and maybe that's the one thing out of their control, BUT....I'm giving them credit for that too!

Admission price....$20 seemed just right. Fair price & a good value. Others must have thought the same, as the stands were really packed!

Facility improvements....What a change from the last time I was there!  All those new planks in the bleachers, the spiffed up bathrooms (even my wife mentioned how clean they were), major sections of the track re-paved. The only suggestion I could make, and I'm sure it's in the works, is to add a lap counter....NOT a complaint, but it would be a welcome addition.

The concessions.....LOTS of food choices, tasty, and at reasonable prices (are you listening Buffalo Bills Mgmt.?).  My wife's pulled pork sammy at $6 had a lot of meat and looked good. She confirmed that it was. And seriously....a double cheeseburger (with good sized burgers too) for $5.50 on a better than average bun??  How can you beat that? It was delicious too!  $4 for a 20 oz. draft beer was cool and the ladies pouring were cheerful and friendly. Add in the "beer guy" coming through the stands, when you didn't want to risk missing the action by leaving your seat, and they had all the bases covered.

The tempo of the show....The good weather and lack of major cautions helped, BUT....the folks running the show did a fantastic job. Started on time, kept things moving along nicely, had a relatively short intermission and had us on our way by @10:30. It was refreshing not to find anything to complain about, on this topic. Great job!

The racing.....Well, it's always been a pretty "racey" place, but even that seemed to have been upped a notch last night. All the classes put on good shows and were able to utilize 2 or more grooves, but the MOD race was fantastic!  110 laps was just right (well, Andy J. might have preferred 112). All kinds of pit strategies were used and really good hard, clean racing! So nice to be at a place where you don't have follow the leader racing. And even if you don't happen to be a fan (but I AM!) of Andy J., who WASN'T watching him make that bonzai charge through the pack after his late race pit stop??  My wife, who is casual fan, at BEST....could not stop jumping up and down, pounding on my back, and screaming in my ears for the last 10 laps! I've been practically begging her to come with me for years, and now I think the next time might not be as hard a sell. Emerling and Hossfeld both had alternative (pit earlier) strategies, and both drove great races, but man.....if the race had only been a lap or two longer, methinks the results just might have been different. What a race!

Overall.....I give the overall experience a 9.9 out of 10 (do everything the same next time AND add a lap counter and it'll be 10/10).  THANK YOU to all who contributed to our very positive day at the races!

Bill & Jill

« on: March 31, 2014, 09:32:39 AM »
Who else thinks he should have received multiple beat-downs after that race? I get that it's hard to pass at Martinsville and that the outside lane is virtually nonexistent, but I saw plenty of other people pass cleanly, whereas I don't think he passed anyone all day w/o hitting them! Not cool, Johnny!!

I had a #, that's now not good, for Jim Cerone in the Syracuse area. Does anyone know if he's still in the business of ceramic coating headers? If yes, can I get contact info? If no, who else does that in Upstate, NY?

Racing Discussion / Transport request
« on: September 24, 2013, 07:34:12 AM »
I'm looking for a little help from someone that has a trailer or rollback. Racing's done for me this year, but I'd like to spend a relaxing day at the Hilton Applefest on 10/5, enjoying the weather, an apple sausage & a beer, and some good racing discussion. Unfortunately, my "regular" truck/trailer combo is not available on that day. Anyone close enough to Spencerport, with something that can transport my Vintage Modified, likes free food, free beer/pop & lively racing discussion interested in going to the Applefest car show? Would gas money help? We can talk about that too. If interested, please email (wfitzsimmons@yahoo.com) or give me a call (585-349-8198).

Bill

PS: Remember, no good deed will go unpunished!
